Keep Busy As Much As You Can And Stay Productive And Positive

Try your best to focus on the things that you can control

We are in uncharted waters now around the world. Things have changed so suddenly and mercilessly that it is hard to comprehend that it happened.

Though we want and need the normal routines of going to work and school, they have been taken from us. Now so many millions of us are forced to stay home and do little else.

We want to be in control, but we are not in control any more of the big things. That is a hard change for so many of us.

I say we can start being in control of other parts of our life. We can keep the power that we have and build on it.

Here are some ways to stay in charge of parts of your life:

  • Maintain communication with friends, neighbors, and family members
  • Control your spending
  • Keep working on your career and income prospects
  • Review your savings and find ways to get better returns
  • Focus on your grocery spending and how you can but healthier food
  • Keep the children occupied with interesting projects that teach them skills
  • Master your garden and grow beautiful plants and flowers
  • Keep your mind and body in a positive state of calm
  • Learn new things and grow mentally powerful
  • Live others more and show that you care
  • Be the powerful rock of strength that others need to see
  • Believe that all of this will pass and normalcy will return

We are all on this planet together and we have to make the best of it. Do your very best to keep a positive perspective and show yourself and others how strong you can be in the toughest of times.
